Offshore Payments Challenges
The greatest problem offshore brokers are going through is funds. Currently, IX Securities is working with financial institution wires, 2pay4you, Western Union, Vload, Bitcoin, Fasapay and Perfect Money. The frequent factor about all of those cost strategies is that purchasers cannot do chargebacks.
The high-risk funds business has been on the lookout for options within the aftermath of the reclassification of foreign exchange and CFDs brokers transactions by VISA and MasterCard final yr.
Brokers positioned offshore are deemed too dangerous to take care of even by unregulated cost establishments.
The rise of the recognition of offshore firms comes after the European Securities Markets Authority (ESMA) final yr modified the leverage requirement for European purchasers. Since then, offshore brokers have been mushrooming within the Pacific and the Caribbean, aiming at EU-based purchasers who need to place highly-leveraged bets.
